While it won't be the first device to reach the market with Qualcomm's latest chipset, there may well be a few reasons why Android fans opt to catch the Pixel 2 XXL and throw back the rest.

Google is planning to add a built-in ad-blocker to Chrome, according to sources, and it will target the Internet's most obnoxious types of advertisements.

Curved glass and OLED displays; reworked dual cameras; and tiny bezels. I'm excited, certainly, but I'm also worried, and I'm not alone.
